All this month, we’ve been talking about flowers and how to arrange beautiful grocery store bought flowers (or silk flowers) just like a professional florist. But, I know some of you have expressed that buying real flowers (or even some silk ones) can get very costly, which is true. I usually buy a bouquet of fresh flowers once a week, when I do my grocery shopping. That can get costly! So, I thought I’d share some other ideas on how you can incorporate florals into your home, and obviously get more bang for your buck as these décor options aren’t going anywhere.
I’m currently on the hunt for wallpaper, and one thing that I noticed is that floral wallpaper has no intentions of going out of style. Even better, some designers have opted in creating a new trend – large scale floral wallpaper. I like these much better, than the smaller scaled floral wallpapers because they are much more dramatic, becoming the focal point in the room. They look like beautiful murals, once completed.
You can also use floral fabric to bring blooms into your home. I bought these beautiful floral chinoiserie pillows from Tonic Living. But, you don’t have to stick to pillows! You can upholster a headboard, for example, with a beautiful floral print, to give your room that pop.
If you’d like to go with something a little less permanent than wallpaper or upholstery, try stenciling. Royal Design Studio Stencils and Cutting Edge Stencils have great stenciling options, including these floral damask patterns. If you ever get tired of your stenciled blooms, simply paint over them.
Floral Scented Candles
Nothing screams, flowers than a lightly scented floral candle. I sometimes will burn a floral scented candle, and a light linen or fresh laundry scented candle so that the floral scent isn’t too overpowering in the space.
Floral Art Prints
This is another option for those of us who don’t want huge (or small) flowers plastered all over the walls. I love this botanical diagram print from McGee & Co. Once again, the large scale floral becomes the beautiful focal point, drawing your eyes to the print.
Floral Dinner Plates
A common Spring theme is incorporating floral dinnerware into your home for seasonal celebrations like Easter and Mother’s Day. Here are some beautiful floral dinnerware options that I’m currently obsessing over.
Floral Decor Accents
Floral lighting is in and it is quite whimsical. West Elm, Potter Barn and Horchow have some great options!
